And with cars-scanner, you may save up to 70% on your rental; we regularly launch special offers together with rental companies of the city.

In addition, the price depends on the point where you are planning to pick up the car. Pay attention to this to make the trip more advantageous.

The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to Rethymno, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:
All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.
More often than not, these new impressions of the trip will make you feel a bit reckless mad, making you willing to rush through streets of the city a little faster than the rules prescribe. Do not do this; the size of the fines will unpleasantlysurprise you. Therefore, try to keep within the specified speed limit:
If you sum up the information, the average speed of traffic in European cities is 50 km/h, in the countryside it's 80 to 100 km/h.
